Neumünster (German pronunciation: [nɔʏˈmʏnstɐ]) is an urban municipality in the middle of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. With more than 79,000 registered inhabitants, it is the fourth-largest municipality in Schleswig-Holstein (behind Kiel, Lübeck and Flensburg).


The first historic record of the precursor village „Wippendorf" dates from 1127.

Current situation
